NYS Draft Proposal to align Medicare & Medicaid payment Reform
New York State (NYS) has released a draft proposal outlining the alignment of Medicare's and NYS Medicaid's Reforms to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The proposal highlights the Medicaid value-based payment (VBP) program with the Medicare program's initiatives for alternative payment models (APMs). The State believes that aligning these two programs will improve care quality, reduce complexity for providers, and improve the ability of financially weak providers to participate. Click here to access the full proposal.
